Every time.

Patch test and Passport and you’re ready to go!

Step 1: Get your Colourstart Patch Test

If you haven’t already got one, the first thing you need is your Colourstart Patch Test.

Step 2: Set up your Passport

Note – make sure you set up your Passport before you use your Patch Test, and allow at least 4 days (96 hours) to complete the test


Set up your Passport Account to get started.

Select which Salon(s) you’d like to share your Passport with.

Answer a short health-related ‘screening questionnaire’ to check that it is OK for you to use Colourstart

Step 3: Use your Colourstart Patch Test

Follow Passport’s step by step process to use your Patch Test and record the results.

Apply and remove the Patch when Passport tells you to and make sure you upload images when prompted.

Finish by confirming whether you’ve experienced a reaction to your Colourstart Patch Test.

No reaction? Say hello to colour freedom

If you don’t experience a reaction to the Test you’ll get a green ‘OK to colour hair’ Passport, which any participating Salon will accept instead of a standard test, even for walk-in colour and repeat colourings.
